Corgi Caroling thru Balboa Park!!!
WEATHER UPDATE 12/15 am: Great News! Looks to be partly cloudy with less than a 10% chance of rain tonight during our Meetup! Bundle up, because it will be a cool 57° (cool only if you live in San Diego).
WEATHER UPDATE 12/13: 40% chance of rain on Saturday morning. Fortunately the evening looks clear for corgis. Please check back here before heading out.
We'll meet at sunset(4:44pm) at Nate's Point for a little pre-caroling romp. At 5:30PM, we'll leash-up and decorate our corgis with bells & glow necklaces for a corgi parade across the Laurel Street Bridge to the Bea Evenson Fountain. On the way back, we'll pass the Lilly Pond and stop at Lady Carolyn's Pub, which has pup friendly outdoor seating, warm apple bread pudding, hot chocolate, cappuccino, and irish coffee. Perfect treats to warm-up every corgi owner, both inside and out.
No caroling required... we'll let the pups do the howling for us.
BRING: your decorated dogs, ready for caroling! Holiday attire, sweaters, collars, or colorful scarfs are suggested, but not necessary. I'll bring bells and glow necklaces for 50 70! I'll have blue glow sticks for those celebrating Hanukkah. Bring additional light sticks, necklaces/bracelets or other corgi lights, if you want. Battery operated LED's work great too because they don't get hot.
NEW: Join in on THE HOLIDAY PILE by BRINGing a small unwrapped toy or treat. Once at the Pub, we'll throw all the toys & treats in a holiday pile and let our corgis nose around, one at a time, to pick one to take home!
HELP NEEDED: It's time again to request small contributions from our members to help offset the cost of our Meetup website and its great communication tools. I really do need your help. I don't want to charge an annual membership fee, or charge an attendance fee to cover incidentals like the bells and glow necklaces for this Meetup, or the Howl-O-Ween prizes. That ruins the fun and discourages people from attending. We have 40-60 people who participate every month (plus a bunch of other members too.) If everyone at a single Meetup contributed $5, that would cover everything and I wouldn't need to ask again for a year. We're asking for just $5 per dog!What a deal! PLEASE keep the fun going by dropping a few bucks into the MONEY JAR. I'll have it with me at the dog park, at the gate where we exit the park on leash, and at the pub.
